The model's funeral is being held at Cascades Hills Church in Columbus, Georgia, Kim's hometown.

Kim will be buried next to her mother, Sarah Lee Porter, who died in 2014.

There wasn't a person she met [whose] soul she did not touch.

Several speakers delivered eulogies for Kim during the service, including Mary J. Blige, Dallas Austin, Bishop Noel Jones, her son Quincy Brown and Diddy. Her creative director Todd Tourso previously told Vulture the song was also about watching her mother lose one of her best friends. "Kim was the type of woman who changed lives for the better", the Porter, Goodwin and Combs families said. Although her time here on earth was far too short, she lived a life full of objective and meaning. Porter was discovered unresponsive in her home in the 10300 block of Woodbridge Street in Toluca Lake in the San Fernando Valley.

"Despite her beloved status, Kim counted motherhood as her greatest achievement and was a committed and devoted presence in the lives of her four children, filling them with love, grace, compassion, joy, and hope", her family said in their press release. I miss you so much. The tributes have continued to flood social media, including ex-husband and singer Al B. Sure!. As a family, we promise to honor her every day of our lives.

Alongside a video of himself cradling Kim while she was pregnant, he wrote on Instagram: "I've been trying to wake up out of this nightmare". "But I haven't. I don't know what I'm going to do without you baby". Today I'm going to pay tribute to you, I'm going to try and find the words to explain our unexplainable relationship. "Her profound legacy and light lives on through them".
